One of the most prominent musical ventures that Mr. Kimock was involved with was KVHW with Bobby Vega, Alan Hertz and Ray White. You can tell Kimock’s guitar tone from a mile away. Joining in on the fun for “An Evening with Steve Kimock & Friends” will be Reed Mathis on bass (Tea Leaf Green/JFJO), Jeff Chimenti keyboards (Furthur/Dead & Company), and John Morgan Kimock (Mike Gordon Band). This is sure to be a night of beautiful improvisation.
